No word yet if Eminem will be showing up in Park City for one of those late night concerts that only happen at Sundance but the Oscar winning Rap God is certainly part of the New Frontier slate for next year’s festival.
While it’s usually the films in competition and the premieres that attract a lot of the spotlight leading up to the Sundance Film Festival, but year after year it is the more experimental New Frontier offerings that often point most clearly towards the future. From Marshall From Detroit and 32 other projects from 10 countries, 2019 looks to be continuing that tradition, as SFF founder Robert Redford said today.
Sundance official website reports: Marshall from Detroit / U.S.A. (Lead Artists: Caleb Slain, Felix Lajeunesse, Paul Raphael, Key Collaborators: Stephane Rituit, Ryan Horrigan, Paul Rosenberg, Eric Hahn) — Growing up, Marshall Mathers dreamed of rapping his way out of Detroit. Years and fortunes later, he still hasn’t left. Join him on a night ride through his hometown, where the mirrored struggles of Eminem and the Motor City speak to the heart of what we call home.
The documentary will be 21 minutes long with Eminem doing conversation with Sway. The festival starts on January 24 and finishes on February 3.
